Vancouver Olympic Clothing

The Vancouver Olympic Games are right around the corner in February 2010.

Five drum dancers from Nunatsiavut will be looking good while performing at the event in traditional Inuit clothing.

We spoke to Sandra Dicker, the Youth Coordinator for Nunatsiavut.

Dicker says Nellie Winters from Makkovik is making the three silapaks and Heather Angnatok from Nain is making the akuliks to wear at the Vancouver Olympic Games.

She says Susan Saksagiak from Nain is making the beaded or embroidered hood decorations (nivingajuk) to decorate the hem or hood.

Sarah Ittulak of Nain has made three black bottom boots and Elizabeth Ittulak will make the other two, and they will have Inukshuk designs on them.

Dicker also mentions that Emma Broomfield of Makkovik will make the black bottoms for the boots.

Dicker adds that Simon Kolhmeister is making the drums.
